I don’t know if you remember, but ASUS debuted something really interesting earlier this year when they launched the brand new ZenBook Pro. I mean, they put a 5.5-inch Full HD display right where the touchpad was and I really liked it. It certainly seemed like a more practical approach than something like TouchBar.
Still, I get that that might be a little over the top for some. But, I do think ASUS was onto something when they turned to the touchpad as their next point of innovation. And it looks like they did too, because they’ve started tweaking even the touchpads on their more consumer-friendly ZenBooks.
After drooling over them when they launched during the Acer Global Press Conference 2018, the company’s brand new gaming laptops have arrived in Malaysia.
The Acer Swift 5 is an ultra-light 14″ laptop that runs on the latest 8th gen Core i5 processor. It has a magnesium-lithium body that feels upmarket and it weighs just 0.97 kg. Originally priced at RM3,799, this ultra-portable laptop is now going for less than RM3,500 in Malaysia.
It’s always exciting for people who work on the go when Lenovo launches a brand new set of ThinkPads, especially when its their flagship ThinkPad X1 laptops. And there’s good reason for that because they’re really good at what they’re designed to do.
This year, it’s no different, only it kind of is because my favourite ThinkPad X1 device has a brand new feature that I’ve been longing for.

If you’re in a market for a slim and portable laptop but without much money to burn, Acer might have the laptop just for you. Acer’s new entry-level Swift 1 has finally arrived in Malaysia and it aims to offer ultra-portability for the masses.
Lenovo Malaysia has just announced the ThinkPad P51s, a powerful workstation with ultrabook portability. Designed for engineers and architects in mind, it is packed with top of the line specs with sturdy exterior construction for demanding power users.
The Acer Switch Alpha 12, which can be seen as the affordable Surface Pro 4 alternative is getting a new replacement. At its [email protected] event in New York, they had introduced two new 2-in-1 convertible notebook models – the Switch 5 and Switch 3. Both are running on Windows 10 with the latest Creators Update.
In recent memory, HP has really impressed when it comes to the build, look and finish of their high-end laptops. I was absolutely enamoured when the company unveiled the then world’s thinnest Spectre 13 and now they’re continuing that trend with the gorgeous update to the Spectre x360.
Acer has also unveiled its brand new Swift series of notebooks which focuses on portability. The Acer Swift 7 is their top of the line model and it’s currently the thinnest laptop at only 9.98mm while weighing just 1.1kg. This is the first laptop to go under 1cm thick. As a comparison, the already crazy thin HP Spectre 13 has a thickness of 10.4mm and it weighs 1.16kg.
Xiaomi‘s next big event is taking place tomorrow, the 27th of July. The Chinese company is set to launch at least one smartphone (or maybe two) and a new affordable notebook. While there have been many rumours surrounding the new notebook, this may be our first real look at Xiaomi’s upcoming “Mi Notebook”.
